Shropshire Archives is a treasure trove of information for any genealogist. The only drawback is the battle with Shropshire Council trying to reduce its opening hours. So be sure to check these out before your visit so you make the most of your visit.

The quantity and quality of Shropshire information, both in breadth and depth, is quite stunning. The staff could not be more helpful, both with beginners and with in-depth researchers.A truly wonderful facility.
